Position: Doctoral candidate specializing in physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or a similar subject
Institution: Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt
Location: Braunschweig, Niedersachsen, Germany
Duties: Within the scope of a transfer project funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation; DFG), it is planned to develop practice-oriented demonstrators for the high-accuracy form detection of optical surfaces that are not rotationally symmetric in collaboration with the Bremer Institut für angewandte Strahltechnik GmbH (BIAS) and Mahr GmbH. The measurement principle is based on an approach that was developed within the scope of previous DFG projects. This principle combines multiple light sources with shearing interferometry to allow the form of the entire surface to be acquired simultaneously. Your work will focus on: The scientific implementation of the project; Enhancing the existing setup to obtain a practice-oriented demonstrator; Developing and testing suitable calibration strategies; Optimizing the measurement and evaluation process; Conducting model-based uncertainty analysis; Collaborating closely with BIAS and Mahr GmbH within the scope of the cooperation project; Documenting, publishing, and reporting on your results
Requirements: You have completed your university studies (Master's or German Diplom ) in physics, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering or a comparable field and have obtained at least the grade good; You have experimental skills and experience with setting up experiments; You are familiar with the field of optics; You have experience with software development (controls/simulation) using programs such as Matlab or Python; You are interested in analyzing complex contexts; Ideally, you are familiar with mathematical and statistical methods; You are a strong team player with excellent communication and cooperation skills; You are physically fit to work in a laboratory (performing tasks such as adjustments that require you to stand for longer periods)
